  1. Health authorities modify national vaccination schedule Government blames delay in delivery of Pfizer vaccines earlier this year Published on Friday, April 9, 2021 Citing the delay in the delivery of Pfizer vaccines earlier this year, the federal government has modified its Covid-19 vaccination schedule, pushing back by one month the start date of the different stages of the national vaccination plan. “The schedule of stages 2 to 5 has been modified and may undergo future modifications as it depends on the delivery of the pharmaceuticals,”

  3. By Xena: 44 minutes ago. Molcajete restaurant on the east end of Chapala malecon next to (north) of Cozumel has a molcajete as you describe. It is delicious. One easily served three people. Comes with free margaritas. Does anyone know the name of the restaurant the Xena has referred to?
  4. Years past, the very best Molcajete (the entree) that we've experienced in all our years in Mexico, was at El Bambu (in the strip of lakeside eateries just to the east of San Juan Cosala). Authentic, delicious and wonderful to look at. However their presentation eventually changed so much, that after returning several times we finally just gave up. In years since we keep hearing of Hacienda Coyotes (KM 15 Zapotlanejo - Tototlan Hwy) as having, hands down, one of the very best Molcajetes in all of Mexico (and, definitely far better than anywhere close to Chapala). We've had very mediocre re
  5. This past Wednesday we received our receipts for the 1st Sinovac vaccine shot that we received in Ajijic on March 17th. Unlike the 10 hours we waited for our 1st shot we waited only 2 hours for our receipts. The receipt is the exact document that was completed in front of us 1/2 hour after receiving our first vaccination. We would not have known that the receipts were available if it had not been for friends who called to inform us. Apparently the distribution of the receipts commenced here on Monday between the hours of 9 & 3 and again on Tuesday. We were not given any information as
  6. The prior posts significantly stimulated our interest as we had never heard of this food provider until we saw the March 26th post. That post led us to the "positive" prior posts from September and October, 2020. However, our recent, well planned and "looked forward to" dinner, delivered more than 1/2 hour late, could only be described as: totally dried out, insufficient primary ingredients, very poor quality, dismal appearance with congealed noodles and clumped rice, totally devoid of flavour and not worth anything close to the price paid. We threw away most of the food. We would never
  7. From local gossip, it's now apparent that the majority of people who received their first shot of the vaccine did not receive any form of document proving that they had received the vaccine. One person told us that after his vaccination, he received a sheet of paper from the person taking his information but it didn't have anything other than a "scribbled" signature??? We, and the many others around us did not receive any form of proof that we had received our first shot? Has anyone received any official form of verification? Has anyone, as of yet, received information concerning their s
  8. When the restaurant opened in 2018 there was a flurry of postings that were mostly negative....including one of our own. Nothing that I can find since. From the prior posts the consensus was as follows: 1. Nicely refurbished and decorated location. 2. Expensive, poor value, mismanaged......and........ might need a name change as a D.F. based Mexican restaurant chain (of which they are not part) would likely enforce a "renaming. Any recent updates? We had, at the outset, hoped that it would be a welcome addition to the Lakeside restaurant scene?
  9. SAVTA specializes in large loaves of dense sourdough bread with a perceptible aromatic presence of rye flour. Warning....do not tightly wrap a still warm loaf as can easily develop visible mould in less than 24 hours. Leave the loaf at normal room temperature in a paper bag, closed but not sealed.
  10. We've shopped at El Torito continuously since 1997. Today, I went into the store solely intending to buy cold luncheon meat for sandwiches. On looking at the glass enclosed meat display case, at the end closest to the front of the store, I noticed that the roll of Queso de Puerco was new and hadn't been opened. As it's one of our long term favourite cold meats (in Mexico) for sandwiches, I looked very forward to being able to have our order sliced from a brand new, previously unopened roll. A younger butcher approached and I ordered 300grms sliced. As he began to struggle with opening

  12. No soreness. Impossible to see any mark from the injection. No reactions of any kind. What is bothersome. Virtually all of the totally ridiculous comments made by people who have absolutely no idea what they are talking about. If they would do a little sensible research about the various vaccines on the Internet (and have an open mind) they'd save themselves and others from exposure to utter b.s.!!!!l And what about the mindless soul who posted: "I had the vaccine; had a beer right after and.....no reaction at all!" Totally understandable. It likely would have been exactly the same
  13. Anyone have any information? Name of restaurant. Type of Food. Actual Menu. Hours Thanks
  14. We received our shots on Wednesday in Ajijic. After the injections, at the desk where we surrendered our documents and provided additional contact information, we did not receive a receipt of any kind. Nor did we see any others receive a document to take away. We were not told what vaccine we had received. Earlier in the day, from the gossip throughout the crowd, it was concluded that we were to receive the Sinovac vaccine. As for information about our second shot, the person taking our documents said that it would not be very likely that we would actually receive a telephone call or emai
  15. The vaccine administered today and yesterday is supposedly the Chinese Sinovac product. The medical people administering the vaccinations have advised that having received the vaccine the recipients should avoid alcohol for a 20 day period. The following web-address deals with the subject: https://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/life-style/health-fitness/health-news/coronavirus-vaccine-can-you-have-alcohol-after-getting-a-covid-19-vaccine-myth-busted/photostory/81392432.cms
  16. We arrived at the Ajijic site at 5:40am today (Wednesday the 17th) and although at that hour there were not a great number of people, it soon became known that approx. 300 people yesterday did not receive the vaccine and they would be arriving prior to 8:00a.m. The supposed reason? The hot afternoon weather provided a concern that the vaccine's effectiveness might be compromised. The names of these people were taken and they were told that if they returned this morning at 8am they would be given priorty. That's exactly what happened except that no vaccines were available until just after 9:
  17. Our local family doctor informed us on Friday that once the date and time for the vaccine was determined (and he suggested that it would be this week) that those over 60 who have registered on the web-site and obviously have a CURP or they wouldn't have been able to register on-line) would receive a phone call or email to advise of the time. However he also told us that if we have friends over the age of 60 who are not permanent (here on a tourist visa) and do not have a CURP they can also attend, and they will be able to obtain the vaccine providing they have their passports, proof of local
  18. I just came from the Malecon in Ajijic. There are already 100's of people there with chairs and umbrellas and parking is non-existent. There are police officers present blocking off traffic at the foot of 5 de Mayo (You drive south on Morelos and turn right on Del Paseo but cannot drive any further west than 5 de Mayo where you have no choice but to drive north. All parking on any of the streets in the area are already occupied.
  19. The flyer that was left at our house gives the location for Nona's as the intersection of Constitucion and Revolution which is, in reality, the southern end of the Wednesday tiangus. (Not Guadalupe Victoria.)
  20. Dear little Peter. I'm sending you a picture taken the afternoon before I died from eating raw oysters from the Danube. Same river where we got your baptismal water. Love, Dad - SNORK! Dear little Snorky. When I saw Dad mailing the note to you I felt left out so I've added my picture taken a couple of days after Dad passed and just a day before I passed from smoking those things you marinated in horse pucky juice. Love, Mom - SNORK!
  21. WE'VE DEALT WITH TONY FOR 23 YEARS AND WE CAN ONLY FEEL THE SAME AS MANY, MANY OTHERS. TO US HE WAS ALWAYS ENJOYABLE TO DEAL WITH AND WE ALWAYS HAD CONFIDENCE THAT WHAT WE WERE PURCHASING WAS TOP QUALITY AND HONESTLY PRICED. WE MOST SINCERELY HOPE THAT HIS SON CAESAR AND FAMILY WILL CARRY ON TONY'S LONG TRADITION. HOWEVER, HAVING COME TO KNOW CAESAR OVER THE LAST SEVERAL YEARS THERE IS ABSOLUTELY NO DOUBT THAT IN RESPECT OF HIS DAD HE'LL CONTINUE TO MAKE HIS DAD PROUD......AND WE'LL ALL BENEFIT! CAESAR AND ALL IN YOUR FAMILY. OUR MOST SINCERE REGRETS FOR YOUR LOSS.
  22. A CURP NUMBER HAS 18 DIGITS. THE SECOND DIGIT IS ALWAYS A LETTER. IF FOR EXAMPLE IT STARTS WITH "DO" THEN THE "O" IS A LETTER NOT A "0" (ZERO)
  23. A CURP NUMBER HAS 18 DIGITS. IF IT BEGINS WITH DOX (THAT'S AN "O" NOT A NUMBER) The first letter of your last name followed by first vowel. Example, if your last name is Whinky the first two letters of your CURP would be WI.
